Awwww, Muffled.

Are you sure about this termination? Did you take an internal poll? I know that logically sometimes I think stopping therapy is the smartest thing I could do. But if I (or anyone else) takes any steps in that direction, my emotions erupt in a way that is none too pretty. I get kind of angry about it, until I realize that really if I don't allow any other form of expression, and only allow tantrums to get my attention, then I'm really just asking for tantrums, you know? So I do my very best to listen without tantrums being necessary.

(My therapist taught me that.)

Are you letting all of you speak their mind, and taking all of you seriously? Your therapist worked long and hard to gain the trust of parts of you that never really wanted to trust, and did a reasonably good job of it, didn't she? Wouldn't it be natural for those parts of you to be kind of angry?

And angry that she hasn't contacted you either....

My therapist never contacted me after the many times I quit. He said it wouldn't have been right of him to contact me. But he welcomed me when I came crawling back. (Or storming back, depending on how you look at it.)
